Another popular way to take baby's temperature is by using forehead thermometer strips. Summer Infant Forehead Thermometer Strips are disposable strip that is placed on the forehead.
Forehead thermometer strips are easy to use especially for babies and toddlers. When a baby has a fever, the color of the strip will change and the temperature will be also indicated in Celsius and Fahrenheit degrees.
You can use the Summer Infant Forehead Thermometer Strips if you want to find out whether your child has a fever in a fast and convenient way, but use another type of thermometer for the most accurate results.
Glad to add the new Braun No touch + forehead thermometer to my medicine cabinet.I love having both the no touch or the traditional forehead touch options to choose from. The no touch option, dim guide light, lighted display, and ability to turn off the "beep" makes it even more perfect for taking temperature on a sleeping child. I used this when both my children had fevers and it was very accurate. My 2 year old usually fights having any thermometer touch him when he is sick so this is perfect. I love being able to silently check temperatures in their room at night without having to turn the light on. I received this product free for testing purposes.
The forehead thermometers are fairly accurate IF it is used correctly but will not give you an exact temp measurement. If a person has just been working out and is hot and sweaty, it is not accurate.
